Corporate venturing – collaboration between established corporations and innovative start-ups – continues to develop at a high speed, with renowned adopters among global corporates including Tencent, Qualcomm, Schneider Electric and Alibaba. Nonetheless, a recent survey of more than 120 Chief Innovation Officers in Asia, Europe and the United States by IESE Business School shows that around three-quarters of corporate innovation initiatives fail to deliver the desired results.
Accordingly, it would be interesting to understand how those 25% of corporates could produce successful results. At a Chamber roundtable luncheon on 6 November, Josemaria Siota will discuss the strategies behind their success. He will tackle questions such as: How to reduce costs while speeding up the process? When is the right time to kill a venture that may not add value? Which mechanisms are quickest and most cost-effective?
Attendees will also receive the most recent report on corporate venturing.
